Similar to the press days the band has done already in the U.S. and Canada, we will be covering the press day in the U.K. today!

 

- Ticketmaster U.K. Interview

“I want to make sure that a fan that’s been with us for 17 years is just as entertained as a fan who has literally just discovered the band,” Shinoda enthuses. “The truth is when you’re watching our show we want to transition from song to song, and to have a meaningful connection on a personal level. A lot of our fans relate to our music in that way.”
Promising the inclusion of five new songs on their forthcoming UK tour, Shinoda is adamant that older material will not be forgotten. “It’s a robust set,” he notes, “but not at the expense of old songs.”
“It’s a very delicate balance in trying to figure out how to play Heavy and One Step Closer in the same set. We’ve had so many different eras, but the set it definitely not chronological. It’s about the emotional journey.”

 

There’s also new production to look forward to, inspired by some suitably eclectic sources. “I remember seeing Nine Inch Nails on their Fragile tour and it was like an art project, where Trent Reznor was taking us through these weird abstractions of versions of the songs. I also saw a couple of live comedy shows and realised that there’s an idea of entertaining somebody at all costs.”:

But it's weird because when he was told in an interview while promoting Heavy he should collaborate with him he let out a big fat "meh"

Do you have a video of that? I ask because I've heard him reference Kendrick as one of his favorite artists more than once and I've also heard him use Kendrick as an example of someone he would like to collaborate with.

 

"Asked if hed like to collaborate with Lamar, he replies: Yeah, sure. Chester and I were talking the other day about how great his most recent two records are. We were specifically talking about the artistry of his records that I feel is something thats starting to emerge in hip-hop. Like, Dre is an artist but his communication style is very overt and kind of literal. And Kendricks is complex and colourful and deep and politically charged."

I am not really happy about the possibility of a remix album for OML. The Nicky Romero remix for Heavy is pretty meh, and in general do we really need people to remix the tracks into EDM clubbanger anthems? I know they said there will never be another Reanimation, but either that or don't.

If Recharged is anything to go by then I agree.

Well, most of the remixes made for OML songs yet, are rock/metal remixes, I think there might be almost equally as many rock/metal remixes of Heavy as any remixes of BID, so an album of only heavy Heavy remixes could be done.

Well The remix they are referencing is basically an EDM remix of Heavy and sure they might have some rock remixes on the remix album, but the ones you are talking about are fanmade ones. The only official one, that now has been confirmed to be made FOR LP is the Nicky Romero one which is as EDM as it gets.
